Macka Palas or Palace
Directly opposite is the vast Anatolian Technical High School (Anadolu Teknik Lisesi), again the work of Mongeri and was built at the beginning of the 20th century intended to be the Italian Consulate. The building was unfinished when the First World War began and when it ended they chose to base themselves in the old Venetian Palace in Taksim and this lovely building became a warehouse for storing tobacco. Work was finally completed in 1970 and became the beautiful schoolhouse that you see today.
The Izmir Palas apartment block is just along the road from here and this charming building was constructed in 1925 for Şerifzade Ahmed Süreyya Bey by architect J. d’Armi and was the last of the authentic examples of First National style architecture.
